ABC's "The Golbergs" Beats Fox's "New Girl" Finale/"Celebrity Wife Swap" Is Up 13% in Adults 18-49

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (8-9pm - 5.1 million and 1.8/6 in AD18-49):

During the 8 o'clock hour, ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ran within 1-tenth of its week-ago Fast Affiliate Adult 18-49 rating (1.8/6 vs. 1.9/6 Fast Affiliate on 4/29/14, which rose 2-tenths in the Nationals).

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 49% currently, from 47% at the same point in 2013. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year- to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
